Explicunt quaestiones libri physicorum notatae a I(ohanne) Aston post magistrum Ricardum de Clive

Worcester 13 is a manuscript now in the Worcester Cathedral Library which is an important witness to the kind of logical and philosophical material taught and discussed at Oxford University in the late thirteenth century.

According to f. 116rA the scribe was John of Aston who "noted down the questions on the Physics after Magister Richard of Clive". It seems probable that John had attended a course given by Richard, making the date 1294/5, when John was known to have been at Oxford. [1]

The manuscript was described by Ch. Lohr in 'Aristotelica Britannica', in Théologie una Philosophie 53 (1978)97-99, listing 24 works mostly by British philosophers of the thirteenth century.
